Correct Answer - Option 3 : 60%

**Formula used:**

Percentage of passed student = Passed student/Appeared student × 100

**Calculation:**

Total number of passed students in Zone-M in all the six year = 410 + 480 + 390 + 396 + 424 + 464 = 2564

Total number of appeared students in Zone-M in all the six year = 720 + 728 + 680 + 695 + 712 + 740 = 4275

Percentage = 2564/4275 × 100 = 59.98% ≈ 60%

**∴ The required percentage is 60%**
